Microsoft’s much-anticipated Xbox One and PC game Sea of Thieves will appear at The Game Awards later this week, the company has confirmed. According to GamingBolt, Xbox marketing manager Aaron Greenberg said during an Extra Life livestream recently that the pirate-themed multiplayer game will be shown during the event, which takes place on Thursday, December 7.
In response to the news stories making the rounds based on his comments during the livestream, Greenberg cheekily wrote on Twitter, “Lose lips sink… ;-)” He went on to say that fans should “be sure” to watch The Game Awards to learn the latest.
Sea of Thieves was originally slated to launch for Xbox One and PC at some point this year, but at E3 2017 Microsoft announced the title would be pushed back into 2018. Developer Rare has confirmed that the game will allow cross-play between Xbox and PC players. The developer also added 540p and 15 FPS lock options to the PC version.
